Eyecatchers Notebook

The Racecourse Notebook section of the Newmarket Bulletin contains expert analysis by our team of highly experienced race-readers. Compiled by our extensive team both on and off the track, they detail any noteworthy performances with a view to future engagements. They are particularly valuable as Eyecatcher entries are made by our experts on the day of the race, they are without bias or outside influence and consequently provide a completely independent view of the horse in question both for its connections and, indeed, punters considering their betting plans. All Eyecatcher entries are held in a database and are available for inspection on demand using our easy to navigate system. Similarly, 'dark horses' are added to the database, as and when such data becomes available. Moreover, when any Eyecatcher horse is declared to run, the Newmarket Bulletin 'flags' it up immediately on the racecard with full comments. Look out for the 'N' symbol in the Eye Column. The accompanying number indicates our editor's assessment of the value of the note from 1-5, with 5 being top class.

An excellent example of our notebook horses is Angel Gabrial who clearly delivered what was expected following his noteworthy performance in the Chester Cup, where he was considered an unlucky loser (see comments below). He, subsequently, produced an excellent performance to win the Northumberland Plate, turning the form around with Suegioo who had beaten him at Chester. In addition, while Angel Gabrial was the only eye-catcher in the field at Newcastle, he was also the top ranked horse and, consequently, the Judge's Verdict, making him the clear bet in the race.


Result : Angel Gabrial WON 4/1

Our second notebook example, New Story, was noted as an eye catcher on his debut. He’d run very well on his only subsequent racecourse appearance when perhaps given a little too much to do and beaten by some useful performers. Worth another try on only his 3rd race course appearance, he justified the inclusion into the Newmarket Bulletin notebooks with an emphatic victory.


Result : New Story WON 5/2

Alternatively, if you click on the notebook icon as a member you’ll be provided with a list of all notebook horses for that specific day's racing and for the flat where the declarations are 48 hours the next days notebooks will also be available.

14-06-2020, Doncaster, , Andrew Balding On Betway Insider Handicap (Div 1) Flat, Turf, Good.
Spotted when 3rd to Anfield Girl. Held up off the pace and made smooth headway on the less favoured part of the track with 2f to run just getting tired late on. He looks well handicapped and the type his trainer does so well with. Soft ground will see him at his best and will stay 10f as the season progresses.

Spotted when 3rd to She's So Nice. Slowly into stride and outpaced in rear this good looking daughter of Kodiac will soon be winning. Although she handled getting her toe in today she will be more suited to faster under foot conditions and it would be no surprise to see her running again over 6f there is no doubt that she will stay 7f and even a mile later on in the year.(m)

15-04-2021, Newmarket, 1 m   , bet365 Wood Ditton Maiden Stakes (Plus 10) Flat, Turf, Good.
Spotted when 3rd to Peter the Great in the Wood Ditton for unraced 3yos. he was out the back for the most part and still in last position with just two to run. However, his jockey was looking for room for a hundred yards or so and eventually followed the winner through. He was making ground hand over fist in the last hundred yards and definitely needs a tad further. He is related to both 10f and 12f winners and is likely to be best suited by the former of those two trips, initially. Definitely capable of winning a maiden and may well be capable of something a little better in due course.

18-04-2021, Newbury, 1 m   , Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Maiden Stakes (Plus 10) (Str) (Div 1) Flat, Turf, Good.
Spotted when third to exciting filly, Snow Lantern and although having no chance with that potentially top class winner, he was noted staying on nicely in third. he is a half brother to the Group One sprinter dram Of Dreams who is an enigmatic sort and, as a result, there is half a chance this fellow may well turn out similar but, by Frankel, he will get further than him and he showed further improvement here on his third start. A maiden after three starts he may be tricky to place but looks sure to win races when taking in handicaps. A mile will suits well and anything bar extremes will suit, ground wise.

15-04-2021, Newmarket, 1 m   , Bet Builder At bet365 Handicap Flat, Turf, Good.
Spotted when second to Bullace and although he has a rather ungainly head carriage, he appears to be putting it all in. His pedigree suggests a step up in trip will suit and his style of racing here where he chased home the leader, leaving the rest trailing behind suggested he wasnt stopping and he is well worth a try at 10f. Good or fast ground appears to suit him well but by Dawn Approach it wouldnt be surprising if he handled just a little cut in the ground also.

Spotted when 4th to Hukum in King George V Stakes. Considering he was keen in rear and had his challenge stopped twice in his run but still managed to stay on strongly into a never nearer 4th. This son of Lope De Vega will be winning very soon and his ideal trip would be 12f on fast ground.(M)

10-03-2020, Cheltenham, 0f 87 yds, Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle (Grade 1) Jump, Turf, Soft.
Spotted when second to Shishkin and was desperately unlucky to meet such a high class rival on ground that would have extended the stamina requirement as this fellow looks sure to be best suited by slightly faster ground. He is all speed and came round the home turn looking like to win comfortably and although coming clear of the rest, could not match the winner for the necessary stamina on ground that was, amazingly changed to soft with heavy places, without any further rain, at 11.30am, by the racecourse executive. He will surely win many decent events at the minimum trip and is one to follow, especially on slightly better ground.

11-03-2020, Cheltenham, 0f 80 yds, Insurance Novices' Chase (Grade 1) Jump, Turf, Soft.
Spotted when 3rd to Champ and ran an absolute blinder but, in truth, didnt quite see out this trip, on this ground. he had never won at the trip prior to the race and it would have been one of our concerns when considering his chances but he went to the front early on and although not setting a breakneck pace, he jumped well and was constantly kep up to his work by the ever present Minella Indo, the favourite. However, with that one making a mistake at the last he got another glimpse of the prize before his stamina gave out on the run in. he will be, at least as effective at up to a half ile shorter than this, especially on soft but equally he may get this trip when the ground risdes a good deal faster. Either way, he is a game front runner who will win more races and is one to follow.

11-03-2020, Cheltenham, 5f , l Cup Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3) Jump, Turf, Soft.
Spotted when 2nd to Dame De Compagnie and developed into the only challenger in the last quarter mile. She had travelled well throughout and is another mare on the upgrade, just like the winner. Eventually outstayed and quite possibly outclassed, the concession of 4lb didnt help but she has the ability to progress into pattern company and looks sure to win a decent event over this trip or thereabouts. Goes on most types of ground bar fast.

11-03-2020, Cheltenham, 2m 0f 87 yds, les Juvenile Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3) (Registered As The Fred Winter) Jump, Turf, Soft.
Spotted when 6th to Aramax and noted moving well though stuck in a pocket on the rail before three out. He bided his time and although still unable to extricate himself rounding the home turn, once they had straigtened up he was unleashed and immediately made up several lengths and jumped the last only two or three lengths off the lead. he was unable to make any further progress but left the distinct impression he has more to give and when given a more positive ride, he is expected to be able to win another decent prize. Two miles suits for now and soft ground holds no terrors for him but it will be no surprise to see him over a little further and equally capable on slightly better ground.
